The Post I Nearly Forgot About

In my last post of the 30M2 DoW challenge, I completely forgot to tell you all to come back here today so you could watch the traditional picking of the names video. Sigh. Well, while operating heavy machinery may be out of the question, hopefully some of you have sobered up enough to use a … Continue reading The Post I Nearly Forgot About

What’s Swedish For Kaboom?

A little while back, I was Skyping with the lovely Ziva. For those of you who haven't had the sheer pleasure of seeing Ziva, here's a screen shot I took of her: I know, right? And I guess it would only be fair for me to post a screen shot of myself as well. Here … Continue reading What’s Swedish For Kaboom?

Red Things and Exploding Brains

Today is the last day of February, aka the day we post things for P.J.'s monthly photo challenge. It is also the last day of Nicky's (I keep saying I had nothing to do with it, but no one believes me) 28 Day Writing Challenge and today's prompt for that is "And Then My Brain … Continue reading Red Things and Exploding Brains

It seemed to him that her … Continue reading Evolution

It took me a minute to realize my cell phone was ringing.

And it is a fascinating story, full of twists … Continue reading For The Win

The Interrogation

The searing, unrelenting … Continue reading The Interrogation

Fear

I'm tired. I've been writing for hours; researching, editing, polishing, perfecting. After months of hard work, my literary review of The Collected Literary Reviews of the Times is complete. I assemble the pages to put into my binder. There are a lot of pages; too many to bind all at once. I start the process with a few sheets at … Continue reading Fear

And I Just Realized I Didn’t Even Give It A Title

Have you ever had one of those days that you just know people are never going to believe? I awoke this morning to discover that a meteor had fallen into my front yard. There were swarms of people in hazmat suits walking around it, measuring, poking, scraping. Some of my neighbours had gathered to watch … Continue reading And I Just Realized I Didn’t Even Give It A Title
